    well, in my opinion a delay at this point will almost be a complete let down, unless it was a delay to the World Wide release so it still releases on the same day then I'm cool with that. I wasn't really expecting another pokemon game until at least another couple of years.

    I'd be slightly disappointed but I think I'd still be able to wait..

      If it did happen to get delayed of course I'd be upset but I'd get over it and move on.

        I wouldn't care. I'm used to games being delayed, so as long as the end result is good, I wouldn't mind. The last game I waited for was Torchlight II. And that game was delayed for what, almost two years?

        I'd rather wait longer for a good, finished game than buy a game on the planned release date and find out it's bugged as hell and half of the content is missing.

          If a short delay, I won't mind. If a really long one, I would just do a--- *head explodes*

            With a game like this, I won't be surprised if the day was delayed a day or two, so, I wouldn't really mind as much. I'd still reserve a copy anyway, so I can wait a few days.

              I think I would probably be mad if it was delayed for one (or more) but not all regions. That said, if it was delayed for everyone (Japan and the rest of the world) I wouldn't mind, because it would mean more polished content. I just think it'd suck if they don't do a simultaneous worldwide release like they promised in that simultaneous worldwide announcement.

              Certainly disappointed, but I wouldn't be bent over it. There would probably be a pretty good reason as to why a delay would have to take place to begin with. I'd rather they take their time and make sure everything is in order and no mistakes are made rather than rush themselves and have the fans pay for it in the long run. A few days to a month or two wouldn't be that hard to wait over anyway. Push it to three months or higher though and the impatience will probably start to kick in.

              Hey, I'm only human. We can only wait so long before our patience wears thin.

              Please don't ever do that. At the end of the day they're just games, and delayed or not, they'll get here when they get here. Plus, you'd be missed! <sadface>

                I would disappointed, but at least there not cancelled. Seriously the hype, only to.. be delayed? IMO bw2 were filler games, to keep us happy so they could work on x/y without complaints from fans.

                    Depends on why. If they delayed it to work on it some more, great. But if 'delay' means a repeat of the crap that Nintendo's doing with Fire Emblem Awakening right now (claiming there's a shipping issue and using that as an excuse to push digital copies), then 'annoyed' wouldn't even begin to describe what I'd be.

                      I wouldn't care. I mean I probably wont get the game tbh. I've seen the Pokemon's designs and yea, they're pathetic and I couldn't even decide which starter cuz they look so terrible. They really messed up this time. If the story's really good and if I get it then I'd find a way to transfer older Gen Pokemon, that's how bad they are.

                      I would be disappointed but totally okay with it. The longer it takes to release, the more hype, so I wouldn't be opposed to there being a lot more hype/excitement than there is. :)

                        I would be ok with it if they delayed it to fix bugs, tuch up on the graphics, or to add new stuff. I would hate if they postpone it just to build hype

                          I'd be really really annoyed. I buy games right away, and by then I'm sure there will be more hype, so I'll be even more excited. It would ruin my day for sure. (or my hour lol)

                              To answer this question, I am going to reply with another question.

                              Would you rather have it now, and be somewhat disappointed?
                              Or would you rather wait a few if not several months after it's intended deadline for a fully amazing, detailed, graphical, polished, and ofcourse fun work of art, that will down-right put all other pokemon games to shame?

                              As they say: "Good things come to those who wait!"

                              It depends.

                              If I got my 3DS before October, then I would be like Noooo

                              BUT, if I didn't get my 3DS before the release date I would be glad that it got postponed xD

                                Would you rather have it now, and be somewhat disappointed?
                                Or would you rather wait a few if not several months after it's intended deadline for a fully amazing, detailed, graphical, polished, and ofcourse fun work of art, that will down-right put all other pokemon games to shame?

                                As they say: "Good things come to those who wait!"
                                Problem with that is, we aren't getting the games "right now", we still have to wait about eight months. I think that's plenty of time to complete a game IMO.

                                It'd be disappointing, but if it means a better game, then I can live with it.

                                  The way I see it is that some group of people over whom I neither have nor want control work together to put out a product. That product is released when they believe it's ready to be released. That might or might not be on the day that they predicted it would be. And that's it.

                                  When it gets released, I'll buy it and play it. I don't see how it makes the slightest bit of difference what specific day that is.

                                  I actually wouldn't mind as long as they didn't withhold any information, like choosing to not to reveal some features or Pokemon until after the original release date, etc. I'm really impatient, haha.

                                    wouldn't really bother me, im not all that excited about the new generation, plus i may or may not be getting a 3DS for christmas, which is a few months after it releases.

                                    I would welcome a delay with arms wide open. It would just give me more time to save up for a 3DS plus whatever the new games come out to be. I'm a patient person, so I can handle waiting a little longer to play X&Y.
